Beyond Limits by Steve McClure is an insight into the life of one of Britain's most successful climbers, but this is not just a book for fanatical sport climbers, it is a book to inspire us all. A professional athlete who has dragged standards of UK sport climbing to a new level, but one who is grounded through climbing and does it purely for the love of it.
From early memories with his family out on the North York Moors right up to his cutting-edge, king-line, first ascents of Overshadow (F9a+) at Malham still the hardest sport route in the UK and Mutation (F9a) at Raven Tor. Delve into the mind of a man deeply passionate for climbing to find out what really makes him tick. Learning about the processes he uses, in particular, his motivational processes is fascinating, and how he rose from self-confessed punter to become not just a world-class sport climber but on-sighting E8, climbing E11 and Font 8B+. He writes about his conflict between the desire to climb increasingly bold routes and his hesitant approach to danger. Struggling to find the balance between risk and reward and hanging up his climbing shoes altogether, before finding a new obsession for sport climbing and how that nearly lead to him losing those most important to him.
He explores issues of identity and belonging, who we are, our direction, our purpose, dealing with highs and lows, and how he copes with the worst moments, getting stuck in a rut.
A regular contributor to Climb magazine, he is an honest and wryly funny writer who is humble, and understating of his achievements. This is a real page-turner irrespective of what type of climber you are or what grade you climb.
